Species Referenced: Stokesia laevis (Stokes aster),
AbstractThe photosynthetic characteristics of Stokesia laevis were assessed to determine the potential intercropping potential of this epoxy acid-producing species. The authors conclude that sufficient leaf matter could be produced at light intensity of at least 120 Ámol m-2 s-1 and as high as full sun conditions.
